Litona showcases Prussian White material for sodium-ion batteries

Litona, a startup established at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), has presented its Prussian White sodium-ion battery materials comprising cathode powders and coated electrodes.

Prussian White is a framework material mainly based on sodium, iron and manganese that is chemically related to the well-known dye of Prussian blue. The material has large pores that enable the capture and storage of various atoms or molecules, offering the potential for use in a range of applications. Litona used KIT’s infrastructure to validate the scaling steps and optimize the material for use in next-generation batteries.

“At the moment, even research institutions have considerable difficulties in purchasing sufficient quantities of Prussian White. There are hardly any producers in Europe,” said Sebastian Büchele, founder of Litona. “This significantly impairs research and transfer of the promising sodium-ion technology.”
